BMG is ramping up its development of new stage musicals in both the U.S., with its first production “Punk Rock Girl!,” and in Germany, following the successful run of its first musical, “Ku’damm 56.”

“Punk Rock Girl!” is the debut developmental theatrical production from BMG in the U.S., in partnership with New York-based theatrical company Lively McCabe Entertainment. It features a score of songs written and made famous by female artists and female-fronted bands from the BMG catalog, including Blondie, Pink, Avril Lavigne, Pat Benatar and Sleater-Kinney, along with the title song, the Dead Milkmen’s 1988’s “Punk Rock Girl”; the full tracklist appears below. Plans call for the musical to be marketed to high schools, community, and regional professional theaters, with a film adaptation in the works.

Concord Theatricals will serve as the exclusive distributor and selling agent of the production, as well as handle all sales/marketing and licensing efforts throughout the U.S.
